What's for Dinner and NOTD

It's been a while since I posted a dinner photo - I made this on Monday night. It was the perfect summer dinner - Grilled Chicken with Avocado salad. I seasoned the chicken with Montreal Seasoning, Lemon Pepper and Olive Oil. The salad was guacamole-inspired - and had Avocado chunks, Lettuce, Spring Onion and Tomato dressed with Lime Juice, Salt, Garlic Powder and Green Tabasco sauce. I plan on making this regularly - it's quick and easy yet really yummy.

Now for something completely unrelated - my latest nail polish purchase: Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in "I Pink I Can". I decided to purchase another colour from their line since I'm in love with this nail polish. However - this particular shade is DEFINITELY not a fave. The colour looks like a sweet pink - but on my nails - and in most indoor lights - it looks neon! Day-glo pink is NOT a flattering colour on me! Also, the polish applied streakily/patchily in some spots - despite 3 coats of polish. However, I'm still a fan of the Complete Manicure line. The wide brush applies colour so neatly - and I love the incorporated top and base coat. For my next purchase, I plan to swatch the colour and test it in different light settings BEFORE I buy.

Disclaimer: I purchased this product myself and was not paid to review it.

  1. Looks yummy! Your nails in the pic actually look really nice, I like that pink but if they look neon in realife I don't likey:)

  2. I tried to capture the neon-ness in a photo - but this nailpolish is very deceptive - looks pretty in photos and in the bottle - but seriously yucky in person - and I'm not the only person who noticed that!

  3. That dinner looks so yummy and healthy!! The pink is very cute but looks a bit barbie-ish, lol. I like that line as well. The brushes are wonderful!

  4. Brushes make SUCH a difference - don't they? I'm curious to try the Rimmel Pro nailpolishes - apparently they have a nice wide brush as well.

  5. The salad sounds amazing!

    I like the nails! I know what you mean though, it's so hard to find the perfect pink!

  6. Thanks Ashleigh - that salad is a real treat for me :-)

    It is hard to find the perfect pink - apparently neon peach and pink are currently in fashion - but not for me!
